A new month. The summer is over.
Autumn may be beginning but this month is also a time for beginnings.
In the UK, September is the start of the new academic year.
New uniforms, new teachers, moving up age grades.
New knowledge and skills being learnt.
I decided to start a few new things out of a like-minded habit.
You may have noticed a couple of additional pages on the website?
First, there is Bible Reading Plans.
I’ve used the app YouVersion for a longtime now – it is awesome. There are so many translations in so many languages available, as well as a good deal of audio accompaniments, plus reading plans and prayer guides. The app allows you to join together as a community and share verses and notes.
On the Bible Reading Plans page I will put up the latest plan I am working through, and if you connect with me on the app then you can read my notes and share yours with me.
Second, there is Art Study – Weekly.
With this I am going to choose an art work each week and over the course of the seven days I will write any thoughts, feelings, insights, I have regarding the piece.
Primarily, this is to force me to be slower in considering other works of art and using them to be more informed in my own artistic endeavours.
Over on on my Instagram account @herbiecreative I will be sharing 30 days of my sketchbook – warts and all!
I am not a trained artist and I will be attempting to use lots of different mediums to create and learn new techniques.
It is going to be a busy September, but I hope there is something amongst this which will make a connection with you as well as inspire you.
God Bless You!
